One homeowner in Tower Mill Road, who asked not to be named, said their car tyres were punctured.
“Knowing that this has happened to other vehicles in Ipswich, it seems whoever has been doing it has been on a complete rampage – I am just not impressed.
“There was one single family that had two cars and both cars have had their tyres slashed.”
All the incidents happened some time between 4pm on Sunday and 3pm on Monday.
The offenders slashed or punctured the tyres.
